[ laughter ] it wasn't just leonard with -- you know he -- >> jimmy: no. you didn't meet him in a mall somewhere. >> it was like, i've known that character since i was nine, right. like '79 i think i started watching it on british tv, and then, you know, maybe 30 years later, exactly 30 years later, and i'm talking to the character, not just the actor but the character. and i kept sort of going -- [ laughter ] >> jimmy: how could this be real? >> it was ridiculous. >> jimmy: how could it be real? well congratulations on everything. i hope everyone picks up this book "nerd do well." download it on your kindle, whatever you've got to do.
